  • Great family, day out lots to do and not everything is behind red tape, you can touch some stuff. Building well keep and the views from the windows are wonderful (expect for the mess on them) The is lots of little events on with the museum. Well recommend for locals and tourist. Only down side is the lifts are super slow and normally full. If you can walk up the stairs I would.
  • Excellent museum. Free entry but £4 donation "invited" and I was happy to pay. Fascinating displays on WW2 convoys, Titanic, Port of Liverpool, etc. Clear signage, plenty of toilets on each floor, lifts and of course....a gift shop!!
  • A really good museum and it's free to go around. It's spread over 4 floors and covers slavery, titanic and other Martine aspects. You can spend s good few hour where and it's for lots of videos and interactive parts not just pottery and pictures. Well worth a visit.
  • A lot of history to be learnt in this museum. Fantastic audio and visual presentations of the past, some displays are even interactive. Plenty of history relating to Liverpool and a whole floor dedicated to information about slavery. Definitely worth a visit.
  • I've been here for the first time, attracted mainly from a "uncovered titanic story". Yes there were some bits and bobs about the titanic but I was expecting much more. For instance a reconstruction of some rooms, the engines or stuff like that. Ironically, outside the museum there is an old boat saved from the scrap which has a working reconstruction of the same engines. Good for spending an hour though.
